Eyebrow Tinting Compensation Claims……. The Complete Guide

If you’ve been affected by an eyebrow tinting accident and are looking for ways to claim compensation, then read on.
In this guide we will discuss everything you need to know about making a claim.
We will cover topics such as in what circumstances you can bring a claim and the process involved.
So this guide will help you understand the process of claiming compensation and what you need to do to get started.
Eyebrow Tinting – Dazzling Results or Not???
Eyebrow Tinting Compensation Claims are becoming more and more prevalent.
The process involves pasting a dye onto the Eyebrows and then removing it away. If all goes well the effect can be striking.
However, the dye and chemicals used can cause serious injury if not used and applied correctly leaving the client in physical pain and often with psychological harm.
Eyebrow Tinting colours the Eyebrow from the root to the tip of the hair leaving darker more prominent brows.
Eyelashes can also be treated in a similar way and whilst the process can be safe when undertaken correctly there are sometimes potential side effects.
In view of the risks involved it is important that the Eyebrow Tinting is undertaken by a beautician who has the necessary qualifications, accreditations and experience.
The Huge Importance of Patch Testing
In common with many beauty treatments when undergoing Eyebrow Tinting it is terribly important that the beautician ensures that a patch test is carried out before attempting the main procedure.
When it comes to eyebrow tinting, a lot of people may not think about the importance of doing a patch test first.
This is especially important if you have never had your brows tinted before and don’t know how your skin will react.
Does Patch Testing make Eyebrow Tinting Safe?
It is accepted practice that the test should be carried out at least 48 hours before the treatment is commenced.
- A patch test is simple and takes just minutes for the beauty salon to complete. It involves applying a small amount of eyebrow dye to a patch of skin, for example on the inside of your arm, and waiting 48 hours to see if you have a reaction.
- If the client is in any way allergic to the chemicals in the proposed dye then the test will reveal this and therefore save the client from suffering a full blown reaction when undergoing the main treatment.
- It should be noted that even if the client has undergone testing for a product in the past this should always be repeated to be sure that the client has not developed an allergy to the ingredients in the intervening period.
- A reaction to eyebrow dye can be very unpleasant, with symptoms including redness, inflammation, itching and even blistering. In some cases, the reaction may be severe enough to cause long-term damage to the skin.
- That’s why it’s so important to do a patch test before you get your eyebrows tinted – just in case you do have a reaction.
- A test is simple and takes just minutes to complete.
- So, if you’re thinking about getting your eyebrows tinted, be sure to do a test first!
- It could save you from a lot of pain and misery 🙂
It’s fair to say that the vast majority of our beauty negligence claims arise out of the treatment being carried out without a test.
It’s also important to note that if a patch test is not undertaken by the salon then in many instances this will automatically invalidate the salon’s insurance policy as a breach of the terms and conditions.
This means that if you do wish to purse a claim you are left with the prospect of pursuing the owners of the salon personally for your no win no fee injury claim.
In What Ways can Things Go Horribly Wrong?
The Beauty Salon needs to have in place a tried and tested eyebrow tinting procedure that ensures its customers are safe and protected from the risks of things going wrong.
- One of the main reasons for the potential for things to go wrong is that by definition the the skin around the eye is so sensitive and delicate so it can very easily be irritated and damaged.
- In addition the chemicals which are used in the process contain a number of ingredients which the beauty industry use which can cause an allergic reaction. It is fair to say the vast majority of people are fine but allergic reactions can and do happen causing injury to clients and real distress.
- Another potential problem is infection. If the tinting process isn’t done properly, it can introduce bacteria into the skin and lead to an infection. Symptoms of an infection include redness, swelling, pain, pus discharge and fever. If you experience any of these symptoms after having your eyebrows tinted, see a doctor immediately.
- The dye which is used shouldn’t come into contact with the skin in the procedure but dyes can result in itching, soreness and redness.
- This risk can be reduced by the beautician applying a “barrier” product and often petroleum jelly is used in this respect.

Does Eyebrow Tinting Damage Brows?
There is always a risk of damage to the eyebrows when tinting them.
This is usually due to using too strong of a dye or leaving the dye on for too long.
To reduce the chances of things going wrong it’s always necessary and important to undergo a patch test.
Can Eyebrow Tint Go Wrong?
While eyebrow tinting is generally safe, there is always the potential for it to go wrong.
The result depends on a number of factors, including
- the type of chemical being used,
- the specific ingredients in the products being used,
- and the individual’s skin type and sensitivity.
It is always advisable to do a safety patch test on a small area of skin before undergoing an eyebrow tint, especially if you have sensitive skin.
Additionally, if you are planning on tinting your eyebrows, it is also recommended that you do a patch test on a small area of skin beforehand to ensure that you do not have an allergic reaction to the tint.
How Much Compensation for Eyebrow Tinting which has gone wrong?
If you have had your eyebrows tinted and you have suffered an adverse reaction in some way, you may be able to claim compensation.
Clearly, if the treatment provided by your beauty salon’s staff is in some way substandard then it will be for your solicitor to investigate what has gone wrong and make an assessment so that your claim can be quantified.
The amount of compensation you receive will depend on a number of factors, including the severity of the reaction and the overall impact it has on your life.
